There are millions and millions of wedding dresses to choose from out there and no doubt it can be one of the most overwhelming decisions of wedding planning for brides. So many things to consider!!! Silhouette, neckline, fabric, colour and detail.
Start simple and research what style you like and what suits YOU best, For example, princess style gowns flatter almost everyone, but mermaid cuts works best with taller brides.
Don’t feel like you need to spend thousands of dollars on a top designer dress....especially since you will only be wearing it for one day. A great option is to buy used and you can have it tailored to fit perfectly without having anyone know!
Don’t feel as if you have to go with what has been done; wear what YOU want and what YOU like. If you feel white is not the colour for you, go for a shaded dress. If you are not liking the length... gof for a shorter dress.
Keep in mind, this is YOUR day YOU pave the way!
A good rule to remember.... in ten years looking back on your wedding photos, will your dress look dated ? (remember the neon dresses from the eighties!)
Some "Shopping for the Dress" Pointers.....
Book an appointment- Most bridal shops need to know in advance so they can pair you with a Bridal consultant.
Have an idea in your head what you are looking for, but be open to options. Veil, no veil, lace, beading, elegant or bold???? What you come in the salon with may not be what you leave with!
Stick to your budget. You don't want to to be disappointed in the end when you have fallen in love with a dress that is going to break the bank!
We hope you are able to enjoy the Wedding Dress shopping experience.... the thing to remember... don't let it overwhelm you! Enjoy the moment and you will find the perfect dress for you!
Happy Shopping ladies!!!!!
